City of the Living Dead
Directed by Lucio Fulci
A reporter and a psychic try to close the gates of hell before zombies invade Earth in the first of Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell" trilogy. After a priest guarding the gates dies, Mary and Peter learn that his death created the opportunity for the dead to rise in only a few days. Soon enough, gruesome things start happening - including the film's most famous sequence where a female victim literally pukes her guts out. If George Romero's living dead films are too tame for you, Fulci's films should satisfy all your creepy cravings. Contains violence and gore.

"IM AFRAID MARY'S DEAD."
A decently gory zombie flick with a ending that is more confusing than ominous or scary. Watching a character literally puke her guts out was the highlight of the film.
not bad movie to watch
The movie is a bit of long slog despite being 90 minutes. It's another Italian zombie flick, one of many, that focuses intently on gore and very little on substance. Despite this it's still fun to watch, a great background movie for puzzles or folding laundry. Things I learned from this movie: 1) funeral home casket storage rooms can be used for a private family service; 2) styrofoam caskets don't hold up well against a 5-pound pick; 3) the human skull is no match for the firm grip of a zombie; 4) making out in the car can certainly have its drawbacks; 5) some dad's have a very short fuse and will use whatever power tools are in their reach.
Cats in Fulci's movies are a force of nature, folks
